It appenrs that laws no 73 and 117 of the published acts of the last legis lature are "bogus." They did not be come l'tws but in the hurry and bustle of the closing of the session the clerk failed to give them the proper fiiinr and they were Bent to the Governor as hav ui2 parsed both houses. Ihey were approved and designated for publication They were simply change", in existing statutes and not of any material conse quence. IJoulangcr, the great French agita tor has been chosen Deputy by an im incuse majority in Paris. Thcro is great excitement throughout the city in consequence of the result of tho elec tion. The impression outside of France is that Paris has dune a very foolish it not an insane thing in the choice she has made. It is thoug'.t that the Min istry will resign and that a new premi cr will be chosen. France seems to be getting ready for another revolution. In Pennsylvania they are trying to niiiko it a misdemeanor to mimufucture witnesses for the purpose of prosccutin offenders. It does not seem just right to hire men to go and buy liquor for tho purpose of convicting the seller. Yet there are instances where it is al most impossible to secure evidence ex cept by some such method. Law and order leagues may be handi-capped by such a law, and yet some other method more straight-forward may bo devised. The "Whitecap" mania continues to break out in different parts of the north ern states, and outrages are growing altogether too frequeut. It looks as though there might be some secret un- Icrs'anding or even organization reach ing out through the country. It is possible that some of these fellows will run against a snag one of these days.

BOO R. W. hullokS. It is said that there are no party ines in Congress on the Snmnan ques ion. That body is now waking up to the importance of improving the har bor which has been neglected so long. Every man is disposed to insist upon the maintenance of our rights there. It is not probable that Germany will light. The game is not worth the can dle. Rut that she has grossly insulted us there can bo no question. Bismarck is disposed to trample upon the rights of others where ho thinks ho can do it wi'h impunity. lie may find that he has stirred up the wrong fellow. The Forum for February contains a number of good things. Judge Coxe opens with an article on the crowded state of the U. S. Supreme Court dock et. After coneidenng some of the measures for relief that have been pro posed he proposes a remedy of his own His remedy is a good common sense one, and that is, that the Court spend more time iu attending to business. Dr. Atkinson writes about reforms that do not reform. Jules Verne indulges in a fanciful sketch of what may be in a thousand years from now. There are several other papers of value and the entire uumber is excellent reading. It seems that the farmers of this state have presented a petition to the Senate through Mr. Morrill asking for an increase of duties on farm products. The claim is made that the farmers of this country are undersold in our own markets by the product of ill-paid and unpaid foreign labor. Onions from Spain and F.gypt appear in markets as far west as Chicago. Tobacco raised by coolies in Sumatra, and imported by tricks and frauds, lessens the reward of American growers. Wool that costs but little to raise annually drives 6,000, 000 sheep to slaughter. Potatoes and cabbages come here by the cargo from pl tces where women work in the fields, and they come as ballast, while eggs by the shipload from Holland, cattle from Mexico and barley from Canada, compete in our market with home pro duce. The farmers demand some re lief and we hope they will find it. The Rutland Herald speaks of Hon Alanson W. Beard of Boston as a Pud' low boy. If the editor of that paper will look up his pedigree we think that he will find that Mr. Beard is a Stock bridge boy. A "trusted officer" of the Conn. Mu tual Life Insurance Company ot Hart ford has turned out bad. This man who was stationed at Indianapolis, has stepped out with about halt-a-million dollars. This man was trusted too much. And his case is only one addi tional to the long list that has been made within a few years. Il is sur prising how much a nun can steal and not bo found out. His case is parallel with many others. He did not intend to be a defaulter at the outset, but he was led on by speculation and a little more must go to save that which had already gone, and so he was led into the muddle deeper and deeper until dis closure was inevitable. THE U. S. AND SAMOA. After a little brush with llayti the attention of the United States is just now turned to the Samoan Islands. In that remote region our citizens have been abused and our flag insulted. The trouble is with foreign powers rather than with the natives, and the Germans are at the front ot the offending. And behind all is the weak-kneed policy of the administration. The Samoan Is lands, or Samoa as the newspapers call the group, are situated in tho Pacific Ocean about half-way between South America and Africa in a line almost directly south of the Hawaiian Islands. They belong to tho many clusters that lot the South Pacific, and consist of four principal islands and several small er ones and are occupied by a popula- ion of about CO, 000. A few years ago there were quite a number of American merchants doing business there and on ly one German. While Mr. Hayes was president Minister Kvarts secured some rights there for this government. A treaty was made with king Malietoa ii IH'S by which a naval station was granted us in one of the best harbors n the South Pucific, but however im portant such a station would be to us to protect our people and our interests in that portion of the world, the demo cratic party, holding tho puise strings of the nation has for ten years persist ently refused to use the nation's privil ege and not one dollar has been used for the building of docks or the estab lishment of a station, hence the wanton insults to our flag and our pc pie. Our neglect left the way open for Bismarck to operate. Ho did not neglect his op portunity. In 1884, through the pres ence of one German trader in the Is lands, beset himself to work to destroy American influence. It should be re membered that the people bad become quite extensively civilized and Christ ianized by the efforts of American mis sionaries. To accomplish his object he must break down the power of the reigning prince, Malietoa, who is a warm friend of the Americans. The German Consul, Dr. Streubel, invited Tamas ese, a pretender, to rebellion. He at once made war upon the government and assumed a hostile attitude towards the Americans. Our Consul was not a very bright man, such an one only as could have gained the position under a democratic administration, and not knowing what to lo he run up the A merican flag and declared a protector ate over the islands. He was recalled. Bismarck kept right on. He set up Tamasese. His navy and troops aided him, not only against the natives but against the Americans. Bayard pro tcsted.but that did not worry Bismarck. At last a commission sat in Washing ton. It was composed of becretary Bayard and the British and German ministers. It does not appear that any thing was accomplished. The curious part of this performance was that while Bayard says that a protocol was sign ed he was enjoined to keep it secret and the other powers have not removed the injunction. As the matter now stands the people of this country cannot tell whether the German Government is violating its word or not. Mr. Bayard has virtually agreed not to protest a- gainst any violation of the protocol be cause by so doing ho must violate the agreement to keep it a secret. This is a good way to form agreements where foreign powers have covert designs a gainst us. Whatever the nature of the alleged protocol Bismarck has gone right along with his schemes in the Is lands. To save his people from being slaughtered Malietoa was obliged to surrender himself to the Germans. It is said that he might have easily crush ed tho rebellion but acting upon the ad vice of tho Americun and English con suls, he refrained. His downfall must be attributed to '.he shilly-shallying of the head of our State Department. He has supinely permitted Germuny to do as it pleases there after we have spent years of time and large sums of money to bring the people there into a con dition where they can be ol some use in the political and commerc al world. The fact is these peop'e whom we ought to have protected, and who naturally looked to us for protection, have suffer ed, Americau citizens living there have suffered, injury has come to our credit in all that region where the report of these doings has ext"inled or will ex tend, the efficiency of our missions will be impaired, we have been humiliated before Germany and in the sight of the world. We have abandoned our rights and left our people to care for them selves. The latest reports that come to us are to the effect that the Germans lave curried king Malietoa to some ot the islands in that vicinity. Mr. Bay ard has been bitterly upbraided for the weakness of his course iu this affair. It is a comfort to think that the day is not far distant when Mr. Bayard will step down and out and a man will come into his place who will show to the world that there is no nation . a earth ig enough und strong enough to step ou our toes wiih impunity. Bismarck new his man. BETTEa AMERICAN ROADS. Somo time ago we culled attention to the inferiority of the roads in some ot the suburbs of this city, and to the fact that where good roads exist the increase of population and in the valuation of property has been more rapid than where little attention is paid to them. Brookline to-day is notwd for its tine avenues; the roads are so fine that everybody uses them, and the attractions of that section are so well presented that an increasing number of people wish to select this town for their permanent homes. Brookline is not superior in its attractions to other suburbs of the city, but it has constructed its higliways so well that its claims are better presented. Wherever good driveways exist within easy distance of tho city, the incentive is strong to erect good houses, and it is eminently for the advantage ol the towns suburban to Boston to put their roads in the best of order, and to increase the facilities for reaching the city, if they w ieh to secure the overflow of the city population. But this subject is wider than the Boston suburbs. There is a growing demand for better rouds all over the couutry. Gov. Beaver of Pennsylvania has recently urged this matter iu strong English on the Legis lature. The Vermont press insists that the State will prosper in p oporlion to t lie increase of cxcellei.t ro ids through its beautiful scenery. It is insisted upon that they shall be smooth and hard at all seasons, never muddy, with out roughness in riding, with no ob struction in hauling, so that people can traverse them insecurity and enjovmen There is no reason why the finished highways which form one of the attrac tions ot the Uld V orld to the American tourist should not bo found everywhere in the better settled parts of our own country. iNo public investment is like ly to bring in better and happier returns to the people. IVesidcnt Eliot says that our roads and streets are the worst he has seen in any civilized country, even iu Algeria, and that roaiis aud parks are the instruments of public hap piness, which our own people have too little considered. The simultaneous in terest in this subject in different parts of the country indicates that a public de fect is already widely noted and com mented on, and this is a first step toward a change for the better. Editorial in Boston Herald. PEN N. AND NEW JERSEY ROADS. When the Governor of Pennsylvania wrote in his annual message to the Leg islature last week that the "civilization of a couutry is marked by its roads," he meant to say that the Keystone State cannot claim to rank highest iu civiliza tion. As a matter of fact, no expendi ture of public monies yields so little in return us the road taxes of Pennsylva nia. This, coming from the Governor together with the recommendation that "our entire system of road luws or rather, our road laws which lack sys tem should be thoroughly revised aud codified" is significant and timely. Innocently, Gov. Beaver also bit the New Jersey nail on the head. His re marks and suggestions have been wide ly copied and commented upon by the local papers of that state. "Every word of this," remarks the" Elizabeth Journal, editorially, "is ap plicable, to New Jersey, and every sug gestion could be madetoouroivii Legis lature. The civilization of Union Co. as indicated by its roads alone, is civil ization only iu f pots. There are m try pan of the county in which the public highways tire not roads at all, but sim ply mini-holes. Millions upon million of money have been thrown into these mud-holes din ing the past 100 years, but they lire as deep, as thick and as dangerous as they were in liSJ. There is no economy in keening them so. The prospects are that the Legislature w ill take up this impor tant subject at the next session, aud it is sincerely hoped that it will do some thing to give us good county mads he- fore another winter." Inquiries made yesterday as to the prospect of improvement in the roads of Union County led to the discovery thiit there is a well-defined and repre sentative movement under way. Ar rangements are being made for a meet ing of those interested in county roads from Elizabeth to Plainficld, from Sum mit to Railway, from New Providence to Sp'ingfield, from Springfield to Uo sellc, aud any others with similar views. Among those who are active in the agi tation are Chauncey B. Ripley, for twenty vears a resident of Westfield and reputed the champion road over seer ; Warren A kerman, the largest landowner in the county; the Hon. Alfred .Mills, Senator James L. Miller, Ludlow V . t lurk, Ira Lambert, the Hon. John Kane, Jr., Austin liigelow, Dennis C. Crane, Secretary ot the State Agticulturul Society ; II. P. Baldwin, of the Central Railroad, and the organ ization known as the Central Laud Im provement Compaiy. The plan is to petition the Legislature for a bill authorizingthe Board of Free holders or some othercommissionof the county to declare certain roads county higliways. The idea is to have them worked as county interests for many political reasons. The argument used is to this effect : "The time has come when it will be economy in every way to build our roads permanently and substantially. The comfort of our people, economy in the transportation of our products, say ing in the wear and tear of vehicles and animals, and tha needless multiplication of the highw ays all demand that the laws governing the laying out and con struction and maintenance of our roads should bo radically reformed and sys tematized. This is a matter which af fects every inhabitant. We must all use in some w ay or other, at some time or another, the public roads. Their character and condition affect the breed ing of our stock, the style of our vehi cles, the carrying capacity of our farm ers' wagons, and the speed aud enjoy ment of all who travel for business or pleasure." In most cases in Union County new roads are not needed. It isonlv neces sary that the old roads be declared county property so that they may be put and kept in good order as such.
